Nugget Markets “Fresh to Market” Oct. 1, 2008

In this issue

Munich Oktoberfest Spaten


Since 1397, Munich Oktoberfest Spaten has been brewed exclusively from Alpine water, barley malt, hops and hop extract, according to the famous German purity law (Reinheitsgebot). This beer is also featured in this newsletter’s recipe, Beer-Braised Brisket.

Cahill’s Porter Cheese


This wonderful cheese is not only visually appealing but it tastes great too! Rich, smooth Irish cheddar is pleasantly marbled with Porter beer, making a taste combination that won’t soon be forgotten. Great for snacking and entertaining.

Save $1/lb on Cahill’s Porter October 1 to 7 only!

Harvest Drinks

Pumpkin Drinks

One of our favorite things about fall is that delicious pumpkin is back in season. That means Nugget is full of delightful pumpkin goodies, including the popular pumpkin drinks in our juice bars! Each is made with real pumpkin pie filling; try a pumpkin latte, chai freeze, or even a pumpkin milkshake for an extra-special indulgence.

Gundelsheim Barrel Pickles and Sauerkraut


It’s not German without the Sauerkraut! This traditional bratwurst topping is also a good source of Vitamin C and B-vitamins. For a surprisingly low-calorie snack (only 5 calories per serving!), try another German favorite, Gundelsheim Barrel Pickles.

Sierra Nevada Mustards

Sierra Nevada Mustards

Sierra Nevada, maker of some of our best-selling specialty brews, also produces this savory mustard made with all natural ingredients and award-winning ales. Enjoy it as mustard, dipping sauce or glaze. Available in Porter & Spicy Brown, Pale Ale & Honey Spice, and Stout & Stoneground.

Nugget Sausage

Nugget Sausage

Cooking a sausage can be puzzling, unless you know the right technique. Join Nugget food experts Wayne Rudi and Rachael Levine to learn two great methods of cooking Nugget’s all-natural sausage to perfection.

Featured Recipe: Beer-Braised Brisket Recipe by Nugget Markets chef Jeff Clark

Beer Braised Brisket

This dish is a hearty stick-to-your-ribs meal that is great for Oktoberfest. The bitter character of the Märzen beer is gently counteracted with the addition of brown sugar. Three different peppercorns add a bite that will cut through the richness of the gravy. Beer-Braised Brisket will warm the hearts and stomachs of all your Oktoberfest guests.

Heath Notes with Dr. LizDr Liz

Purely Pumpkin

Making their traditional appearance this time of year with ghoulishly carved faces, pumpkins also should make a showing on the dinner table for a boost to heart health. Pumpkins are packed with a staggering 10,000 milligrams of carotenes in a half-cup mashed (either made from fresh pumpkins or scooped right out of a can). These compounds, which act as antioxidants, help protect heart health by keeping the “bad” LDL cholesterol from damaging artery walls. Cooked pumpkin also supplies potassium and fiber, both crusaders for heart health.

This member of the melon family is often turned into Thanksgiving Day pies and delicious treats such as muffins and quick breads. But you can use pumpkin like you would use any other winter squash as a savory side dish. Season with fresh herbs, such as sage and fennel sprigs, and top with a light sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Next time you make mashed potatoes, substitute mashed pumpkin for about a third of the potatoes (after the potatoes are cooked and ready for mashing). You’ll love these “pumptatoes” — comfort food never tasted so good while being so good for you!
